MicroRNA-mediated denuclearization

Kim Says North Korea Is Stopping Nuclear and Missile Tests Early today, he said the country was stopping nuclear and missile tests and shuttering its atomic test site, which has “done its job.” Those concessions were long demanded by the U.S., lifting hopes that next Friday’s planned summit between Kim and South Korean President Moon Jae-in will be conducted in good faith.

Laws of Biology / Rules of Life

Summary: Slide number 6 clearly states the “Levels of Biological Organization” that the “NSF’s 10 Big Ideas” finally places into the context of what has been known to all serious scientists for more than a century. Simply put, Hugo de Vries definition of mutation (sudden energy jumps) should never have been accepted as anything besides the claim of a biologically uninformed science idiot. Instead, the definition bastardized every aspect of what is now known about biophysically constrained viral latency and…

Let there be anti-entropic virucidal light

Summary: This is a lie! …theories are too detailed to be included in models that study host-phage interactions in the long term, which hinders our understanding of systems that range from pathogens infecting gut bacteria to marine phage shaping present and future oceans. Fuelling the future In his short story ‘Let There Be Light’, the science-fiction author Robert A Heinlein introduced the energy source that would power his Future History series of stories and novels. In The Darwin Code, Greg…

Psychophysical Laws of Biology: RNA-mediated nutritional psychiatry (3)

Psychophysical Laws and the Superorganism  (open access) …superorganisms may also exhibit such behaviour, suggesting that these laws arise from fundamental mechanisms of information processing and decision-making. Reported on Jun 14, 2013 as Nutrient-dependent/pheromone-controlled adaptive evolution: a model and again on: Mar 27, 2018 as Honeybees may unlock the secrets of how the human brain works The study… found that superorganisms may obey the same laws as the human brain. Kohl’s “Laws of Biology” and Darwin’s “conditions of life” can now be…

Light-controlled cell biology (revisited)

See Sci-Bay Scholar for citations and downloads of more than 3300 published works that link viruses to microRNAs Summary: …either the organized genomes of all cell types use the energy source, or viruses use the biophysically constrained energy of the cell types. No extant species can be used as an example of how the virus-driven theft of quantized energy can be linked from natural selection to the evolution of a new species. See also, with my emphasis: Light Offers New…

Death cures theorist’s Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS).

Stephen Hawking death: Was he the smartest man in the world? The media need superheroes in science just as in every sphere of life, but there is really a continuous range of abilities with no clear dividing line. For comparison: Focus on the Role of D-serine and D-amino Acid Oxidase in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis/Motor Neuron Disease (ALS) A pathogenic mutation in D-amino acid oxidase (DAO) associated with familial ALS impairs D-serine metabolism and causes protein aggregation, autophagy and cell death…

Polymaths and paradigm shifts: From Asimov to Bear (5)

Summary: Neil deGrasse Tyson and Lawrence Krauss are among those who have continued to substitute pseudoscientific nonsense for legitimate facts, which is what Hawking did in every book he ever wrote, and each time he made a spurious claim based on his abilities as a conniving theorist whose works still have not been confirmed-and-validated. Now that he is gone, others may proclaim the greatness of his intellect and lionize the magnitude of his influence because they also are biologically uninformed…

Polymaths and paradigm shifts: from Asimov to Bear (2)

Polymaths and paradigm shifts: from Asimov to Bear (1) See also: Search results for virus-driven energy theft Summary: The creation of enzymes, such as ATP synthase is energy-dependent. The energy biophysically constrains viral latency via the creation of microRNAs and RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions that differentiate the cell types of all living genera. Modifying Other’s Originality without Quote is an Act of Piracy A writer who does not cite the sources in h/h feature article is committing piracy. Piracy is…

From photons to the proton motive force (2)

If you know someone who has linked differences in the energy of photons from the proton motive force to the physiology of reproduction and all biophysically constrained biodiversity, ask if they will attend Schrödinger at 75-The Future of Biology For contrast, touting genetic evolution is not the future of biology. See: Abstract: K06.00013 : A Path Integral Method for Analytically Tractable Inference of Evolutionary Dynamics Understanding the forces that shape genetic evolution is a subject of fundamental importance in biology…

From photons to the proton motive force (1)

Conclusion: If you would like to learn how to link quantized energy-dependent changes in atoms to ecosystems in all living genera via the physiology of reproduction, join others age 10+ who will be playing this game in September 2018. Fly’s Blood-Brain Barrier Has Circadian Rhythms “the anatomic characteristics of insect and vertebrate BBB structures are quite distinct.” The molecular mechanisms are conserved. My comment to The Scientist: Feedback of the Drosophila period gene product on circadian cycling of its messenger…

  • What Darwin proved: there’s no such thing as a species
    GENETICS As Animals Mingle, a Baffling Genetic Barrier A short stretch of DNA is challenging what it means to be a species. By: Emily Singer August 5, 2014 Excerpt: “Scientists have dubbed such regions of the genome “islands of speciation.” The persistence of such islands is a phenomenon that has been observed in a variety of […]
